Welcome to the Essex/Herts LDWA website
If you look in our calendar, you will see some of the events organized by our group. Only members of the LDWA are automatically allowed to participate in our social walks but, by arrangement, we welcome visitors who are not members. As our name implies, we do cover substantial distances on our walks and we do maintain a brisk pace across country using footpaths that may not be as well maintained as we would hope. Please send an e-mail to Peter Hogg if you would like to join us on firstname.lastname@example.org You will be very welcome subject to the above restrictions.
All event entry forms and event results can be found under 'Entry Forms' and 'Event Results' on the' Home Page' toolbar.
Payment By Cheques for E&H Challenge Events. I have been advised by our bank that cheques should be made out as follows for all E/H events if they are not to be rejected - LDWA Essex/Herts Group. Could everyone kindly do so in future.

Entry Form: The entry form for St Peters in a Day is now on our web page (Entry Forms).
Dogs on Walks: Subsequent to a recent LDWA Local Groups Meeting (Coalport - 18 Novenber 2012) attention was drawn to the fact that that Walk Leaders/Organisers were not covered under the LDWA Public Liability Insurance for any damage, accident or nuisance caused by dogs brought on social/organised walks by participants, LDWA or otherwise. Walk leaders/organisers could, therefore, be held personally responsible for any damage, accident or nuisance caused by walkers dogs. The Essex & Herts Group Committee has decided therefore to ban dogs, other than registered assistance dogs on walks, social or otherwise, in the interests of all concerned.
We understand the LDWA National Executive Committee will publish their recommendations regarding the issue in the April edition of the Strider
